I know WordPress by default has separate/simplified backend pages for "Author" or "Contributor" but I am wanting to edit these back end pages myself to really, really, simplify them for users but I'm not sure where to look for them, to edit them.
I don't want to remove features and options when I'm logged in as administrator you know, just for users logged in as author. I'm betting this isn't going to be simple, I'm figuring that the code is mixed through out a lot of single lines and different files telling WordPress, if admin do this, if user do that. But if anybody has any quick insights or general direction for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
